Expectation vs Reality of a Land Flipping Business

Closing deals left and right, cash pouring in passively and minimal stress…life as a land investor sounds pretty good, huh?

Is that reality though?

Not quite.

In this episode we’re welcoming back top land investor Sumner Healy to paint a clearer picture of what land investing – or land entrepreneurship as he calls it – is really like (check out his previous appearance here).

He walks us through his own experiences growing his land business, starting with just $7k to having regular 6-figure months. The journey to success is never linear however and with those highs came plenty of lows, from burnouts to plateaus and ceilings that seemed impossible to break through and everything in between.

Sumner candidly lays out the thought processes and mindset that helped him carry on and which are vital for success in land.

In this episode listen and learn:

  • Mindset tips to keep you on track
  • The importance of truly celebrating your wins
  • Why taking time off makes you a better entrepreneur
